  • Medication features

    Avamys is a steroid nasal spray that is used to treat symptoms associated with allergies, hayfever and allergic rhinitis. It contains the active ingredient fluticasone furoate, which belongs to the corticosteroids family of medicines. It works by acting upon nasal cells that react to allergens. By blocking these cells, symptoms such as streaming, running and sneezing can be controlled.

Avamys is a nasal spray which contains a steroid called fluticasone, which helps to reduce inflammation in the nose that is caused by pollen and open up the airways to make breathing easier.


Spray one dose into each nostril once or twice a day.


  • Is it safe to use a nasal spray and oral antihistamines at the same time?

    Yes, it’s perfectly safe to use both types of treatment simultaneously.

  • What’s the difference between Avamys and Flixonase?

    Avamys and Flixonase both contain the same active ingredient: fluticasone. Because of this, they’re very similar, although some reports suggest that Avamys generally works faster.

  • Because this contains a steroid, is it dangerous?

    The steroid reaches the affected areas of the nose directly, and so reduces local inflammation. It should not cause any long term harm.

Side Effects

Side effects with Avamys are quite rare but can happen. These include:

  • Nose irritation
  • Nosebleeds

If these side effects concern you, or you suffer some other adverse reaction to using the product, stop the treatment and discuss with a member of our team.
